Nematology is an international journal for the publication of all aspects of nematological research (with the exception of vertebrate parasitology), from molecular biology to field studies. Papers on nematode parasites of arthropods, and on soil free-living nematodes, and on interactions of these and other organisms, are particularly welcome. Research on fresh water and marine nematodes is also considered when the observations are of more general interest. Nematologica is part of Nematology as of 1999.

Nematology publishes full research papers, short communications, Forum articles (which permit an author to express a view on current or fundamental subjects), perspectives on nematology, and reviews of books and other media.
